About - Frigidaire FRA086AT7

The Frigidaire FRA086AT7 is an air conditioner available from Frigidaire. The FRA086AT7 typically costs between $229.00 - $279.98.

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on air conditioner models like the FRA086AT7.


Btu/hr.:
The unit's cooling capacity, as supplied by the manufacturer (and as certified by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers, AHAM, unless otherwise noted in the Recommendations & Notes). Capacities range from 5,000 British thermal units per hour (enough for a modest-sized bedroom) up to 12,500 Btu/hr. (adequate for a large, sun-drenched room or even two interconnected rooms).

EER:
The energy-efficiency rating, as supplied by the manufacturer (and as certified by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers, AHAM, unless otherwise noted in the Recommendations & Notes). The higher a unit's EER, the lower its operating cost compared with other models of its size.

Min window width (in.):
The minimum and maximum window-widths into which the air conditioner will fit. If your window opening is narrower than the minimum width, the air conditioner will not fit. If your window opening is wider than the maximum width, the side panels will not cover the entire opening.

Tested Model
The Ratings of Frigidaire LRA087AT7 (Lowe's) were applied to untested model Frigidaire FRA086AT7, which in our judgment is enough alike in its performance, features, and specs that our test results apply to both.

Comment:
We put this unit in our bedroom and cooled it fast and extremely well. We live in a 625 sq.ft. condominium in San Diego and by putting a small fan outside our bedroom door, it also cools our living room. People say it is loud, but I don't notice it and really do not care, because it does an excellent job of cooling! <br /><br />Great to have a remote control to make night adjustments and also has the room temperature on it. <br /><br />The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the auger type airflow controls are useless. These augers don't reach to the top of the unit, so air just blows straight. Fully adjusting them left or right will direct some air, but the majority of air will be blown straight ahead.
